Published: 10/26/2021 1:39:52 PM

Michael Quinlan, candidate for councilor at-large in Northampton, has a long and varied history of service to the city of Northampton.

Prior to being elected Ward 1 councilor in 2019, he served on the Whiting Street Fund Committee working to combat food insecurity and supporting programs such as the Northampton Survival Center and Grow Food Northampton.

In addition, he coached numerous youth athletic teams, volunteered at his sons’ schools, and taught swimming to hundreds of children at the YMCA. Where ever help was needed, Michael Quinlan volunteered.

So, it is no surprise Michael Quinlan’s past dedication and commitment to Northampton continues today as Ward 1 councilor. He serves on the committees of Finance and City Services and was a member of the Northampton Policing Review Commission. He stays updated on citizens’ concerns by encouraging discussions about houselessness, infill zoning, Main Street redesigning, support for Northampton Public Schools, and ways to meet the needs of small businesses.

He is open-minded about learning new things and makes informed, thoughtful decisions representative of all people. As our councilor at-large, Michael will continue the conversation about our city’s health and safety, focusing on the establishment of the Department of Community Care. He will strive to advance an open dialogue between city officials and residents and will actively participate in the discussion of how Northampton will distribute the $22 million of COVID-19 relief funds to everyone’s benefit.

He will support Northampton’s effort to fight the climate crisis and strive to make the city budget process more transparent. There is a lot of work to be done and Michael Quinlan is prepared and eager to take on that challenge. Please join us in casting your vote on Nov. 2 for Michael Quinlan.
